I haven’t done a mixed bag of Friday Favorites in awhile. So while I’m gearing up for The Makeup Show this weekend, I wanted to leave you with a few things that I’ve been loving lately…

  • Cover Girl The Super Sizer Mascara: I’ve been spoiled by fancy mascaras lately when I used to just swear by drugstore mascaras. So before I dropped a ton of money on mascara, I saw that I had a Cartwheel coupon for a discount on Cover Girl mascaras so I decided to take the plunge. And you know what I found? This is a pretty decent dupe for Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara.
  • Pretty Gold Necklaces From Baublebar: I have always been a silver jewelry girl til recently and now I can’t get enough delicate gold necklaces to layer. I have to hold myself back from wearing them just about every day. The middle one below is one of my favorites… it has my initial on it but it’s really subtle so I think it’s pretty.

  • Rifle Paper Co: I am VERY MUCH OBSESSED with Rifle Paper Co. I bought the cell phone case and I’m slowly buying up some art prints so I can slowly get them framed (framing is expensive, y’all.) I’m grouping the three prints in our master bedroom and then I’m going to buy a few others for our bathroom. Eventually I’m going to buy even MORE for my desk/study area. I think they will make a pretty background for my eventual YouTube videos that I will TOTALLY do some day.

  • Starbucks Sweetened Iced Coffee K-Cups: I know this makes me sound kind of basic but I love iced coffee. It’s already getting WAY TOO HOT in Texas and regular coffee is just not going to cut it. I would love to get my Starbucks fix every day but as someone who is perpetually late, that ain’t going to happen. So I save a bit of money by making my iced coffee at home with my Keurig. It’s so easy and fast and now I get my iced coffee fix every day. <<Heart Heart Heart Praise Hands>> (I wish WordPress did Emojis.)

There you have it! I might pop in with an update from The Makeup Show this weekend so keep an eye out. Follow our Instagram as well for more frequent updates!

    Rifle Paper Co. is seriously one of the best. I’ve been seriously considering getting wedding invitations done through them, but I’m sure the expense would be outrageous. I can’t help it I love all things floral!

      I feel like my house is going to be completely decorated in Rifle Paper Co. And I am OK with that.
